commission work by Thierry Isambert for The Coumminty held at The Bass Museum
The bulk of the donations would go towards the cost of the studio space (approx. $8,000). The remaining donations will be allocated towards compensation for assistants and laborers involved (approx. $5,000), administrative and marketing costs (approx. $3,000), costs for design (approx. $2,000) and materials and supplies needed to make this vision come to life (approx. $7,000). Fortunately, I receive an overwhelming amount of donated materials from different partners throughout the city, which helps in reducing the cost of this project.

Artist Haiiileen creates a 10’ x 10’ commission installation at the W Hotel South Beach. The inspiration for this mixed media installation was taken from nostalgic Miami life, expressed through the manipulation of tropical flora, vivid colors, and linear lighting.

Inspired by Vaporwave, a culture characterized by a nostalgic fascination of retro aesthetics, video games, technology and advertising, Sunset@Noon submerges festivalgoers into a state of alternate dimension. The installation takes over the entirety of a 6,000 square foot warehouse space at MANA, morphing into a multisensory experience of art, music, and fashion, each expressed in vintage, internet based aesthetics. At the pinnacle of the room will be an interactive fashion installation that mirrors the appearance of a real life shopping mall, complete with department stores, kiosks, and abstractions by local fashion brands ISHINE365, Style Mafia, and Algae. The multisensory mall installation fuses audio and visual dimension into reality through
a virtual shopping experience, echoed by experimental performances courtesy of local musicians Virgo, Uchi, Otto von Schirach, Rat Bastard and more. Attendees will stroll through time and space, as the vibration of psychedelic music pulsates, and one dimensional barriers slowly fade away. New forms of visual art will be showcased such as a transformation chamber “Make Up Salon,” where guests can peer through acrylic doors and catch a glimpse of behind the scenes hair and makeup artists transforming the performers. III Point’s artists will enter the chamber throughout the course of the festival, providing more of a high fashion look for their performance.
Aileen Quintana explores the realms of performance art, such as an experimental marbelizing act titled Interdimensional baths and more. Additional elements of the Sunset@Noon experience include a VHS store by Veronica Gessa, Dale Zine lounge and art from Strangeways, GG artwork, Jay Shogo, Natasha Tomchin, and an artist collective from Post Vision along with a hangglider painted by the esteemed artist, Brian Butler.

In “Bitches Be Trippin” (2014) Artist Haiiileen uses a multi-layered, multi-sensory environment, and her background in fashion, installations, and performance art pieces to create a four-room interactive experience in which participants enter into an acid beach themed room that takes them on a transformational trip where stylists are ready to transform guests at makeup and nail stations. After their makeover guests are ushered into a neon glow in the dark lounge which takes them to the end of their journey through the acid beach. Guests can then can capture their acid trip to keep a trippy memory at the interactive photo booth in the fourth and last room.
